Green Architects Day

, University of Brighton / UK

Eileen Sutherland will be discussing the UP Straw project at this event, as part of the project's work on Training of Construction Sector Professionals and Undergraduates. Sustainability at Scale: Size Matters Size matters and so does what you do with it. "When you have more than you need build a bigger table not a higher fence" - Unknown The theme this year is Sustainability at Scale: Size Matters. We will be asking our leading experts if there is any use in our current climate of being a tiny beacon of sustainability or should we be focusing on larger developments. How this can be possible and where the architectural and design community is heading? How does this translate to a city like Brighton and Hove and what is being done here at home? This year's Green Architecture Day promises to be an inspiring day of talks, with stalls and stands, including Meet the Expert and a complimentary light lunch. There will also be a facilitated plenary panel at the end of the day where we explore participants' questions. If public speaking does not come naturally you can still ask questions by ballot.
